The Sherman Historical Society
Be a Part of Living History

The Sherman Historical Society was founded in 1975 with the purpose:

  • To bring together people interested in the town's history.
  • To collect and preserve objects which help to establish or illustrate its history.
  • To acquire and manage any property available to the Society.
  • To interest young people in their town's heritage
  • To publish historical information, and to maintain a library of historical materials

Upcoming Events

Tractors, Plows & Farm Fun, Oh My!
Farm Life in Sherman Exhibit

But wait! It’s not just an exhibit! Come October 11th, the Society barn and grounds will be transformed to show how the people of Sherman, which was once a farming community, worked the land and lived their day to day lives.

There will be hands-on fun, active interpreters and crafters, and, we hope, a beautiful fall day for the whole family to enjoy the Society’s grounds.

Hours are 11am - 3pm. Stay tuned for more details, check the SHS Website for Farm Day updates.
